This week, host Ellen Wood speaks with Luká Yancopoulos, CEO of Grapevine Technologies about the challenges facing the healthcare supply chain—especially the risks of relying on single suppliers. Luka shares strategies for optimizing supply chain management, including consolidating orders, introducing new suppliers, and using real-time data to reduce costs and backorders—and provides examples of clients who have seen tangible benefits from such practices.


Join us as we discuss:

  • The risks of reliance on single suppliers, and how the Covid-19 pandemic exposed and exacerbated them
  • How backorders in the healthcare supply chain impact patient care and operational efficiency
  • The role of technology-driven solutions in enhancing decision-making and reliability by identifying untrustworthy suppliers
  • Why it’s important to optimize purchasing decisions based on availability, cost, and speed of service in healthcare
